Seems like it's the hot new thing to do. Men, woman and children all do it. I personally don't and I think it looks dumb. Nobody thinks you're happy or excited just because your mouth is hanging open. What about you guys?


I keep trying to resize the first image but it's not working :messenger_grinning_sweat:

Fetid, rotted, cursed Isz
There are 3 people who shouldn't be in there and one of them is James fucking Rolfe. That dude screams and curses a lot so someone probably screencapped mid rant about some shitty old game that only 2 people beat back in the 80's.

That's just the trademark expression AVGN does, it's more like a "gasp" at how shitty a game is.
He also does it when talking about how racist and sexist indiana jones and the three stooges are too!

Yeah, I've made that face for photos, though I feel self conscious about it now.

Look, my smile looks like shit, it's more photogenic for me than smiling.

I'm going to have to go against the grain here and say that this face is fine, it's just silly fun, disagree with me if you want but that's how I feel.

I also have a beard like most of these guys, I "look" the part of a "soyboy" for the most part, but I have a different attitude, attitude is what matters, don't judge a book by it's cover.

You'll have to forgive me I guess.

I don't take pictures of myself to begin with. If someone else takes one I'm not exactly trying to look like a retard.

I honestly like "gape" for this expression more than "soy face". In a civvie context, most people don't associate "gape" with, ah, goatse and similar images, so it is a better lowkey insult.

The defense I have seen for this is that the expression shows happiness, but like I said in another topic it looks more like disgust or being stunned. AVGN using it in character is a normal use, I think.

He also does it when talking about how racist and sexist indiana jones and the three stooges are too!
Wait, he did this unironically?

I associate gape with something totally different.

I associate it with "gaping wound" because that was the first context I saw the word in. I assume most people do not take the porn meaning IRL without a sexual context, but a lot of internet people would.
